A. Of course. Too many threads are set in motion here, or are foreshadowed.

Re: EpDis: Signs And Portents

The episode around which the show turns. I literally was left "WTF!" at the end, and determined that I would never miss another episode (I thought at the time that the Shadow ship was no big deal to the fans, because I had missed a coupla eps, until I talked with my business partner the next day). They don't get any more "A" than this one.

Re: EpDis: Signs And Portents

Really like this ep,but doesn't quite fit in my A list. B++.Morden is the best baddy EVER! I love the way he just seems to check all the ambassadors off on a mental list, and after he talks to Londo you can totally here him thinking "Bingo! He'll do veeeeery nicely. (insert quiet evil laugh here)" And JMS's way of winding don the story then hitting us with this massive great spider THING out of the blue is just brilliant! But can someone out there PLEASE tell me how they managed to blow the raiders to hell and then retrieve the Eye intact!?

Simply. One of them got personally involved. We already know that Vorlons can move though walls, without leaving a hole... so why should Shadows not?

One simply boarded the ship... took the Eye (from the hands of some *rather surprised* Raider)... and left the ship before the Shadow vessel fired.

Or alternatively (because the box seemed a *little* bit charred) a Shadow was not personally available. The Shadow vessel simply "flipped" part of the Raider ship into hyperspace (for example the cubic meter around the box) and destroyed the rest.

Re: EpDis: Signs And Portents

Shadow weapons don't fry everything, either. Cut a big hole in the ship and if the Eye wasn't in that hole, it's safe with the rest of the space debris.

Re: EpDis: Signs And Portents

There also could have been a shadow agent in amongst the raiders.......in the time lapse of cutting away and before they are sliced and diced.....the shadow agent killed everyone in the room with the Eye, and departed the ship one way or another......ok, burn'em........but I suppose since it was charred, someone said, it was probably on board when the ship got dissected.......

Re: EpDis: Signs And Portents

Absolutely an excellent episode.The first time I saw it I didn't think that it would be so important for the whole story but after "Chrysalis" it was obvious that Morden is not just an ordinary guy.Londo's answer was exactly what the Shadows wanted to hear.We also see Lady Ladira's prophecy which in my opinion was refering to the possible future in "War Without End 1", showing a Shadow fleet destroying B5.It would be great if we could see the fight between Kosh and The Shadows and the damaged encounter suit.
